the ambient temperature can fall below 5°C.
Before positioning, take the machine out of its

drain. You need to position your machine, taking
into consideration that its connections will not be
altered once they are made.
Do not grip the machine by its door or panel in
order to move it.
Take care to leave a certain clearance from all sides
of the machine so that you can comfortably move
it back and forth during cleaning.

hose to the water tap, ensure clean water is flowing
from the tap before making the connection. Connect
the water inlet hose directly to the water inlet tap. The
pressure supplied by the tap should be at a minimum
of 0.03 MPa and at a maximum of 1 MPa. If the water
pressure is above 1 MPa, a pressure-relief valve should
be installed.

not be used. The water inlet hose must be
examined at an interval of twelve months for
deterioration and replaced if necessary.
